The Secret To Becoming An Expert (Or Oprah)

td-or-you-can-be-awesomeTo learn what works, we're taught to test and iterate. Again and again.It can be terrifying to miss the mark, but giving yourself the space to TRY is liberating.In that space (also called the learning zone) - when you grant yourself the freedom to fail and learn from it - you advance.In Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell refers to the 10,000 hour rule and how "world class" (Oprah-style) success doesn't happen after a few months.While expertise can be achieved along the way, research shows that it takes approximately 10,000 hours to produce phenomenal-earth-shattering-world-class results.But it takes guts.And focus. In one specific area.

"If you have the guts to keep making mistakes, your wisdom and intelligence leap forward with huge momentum."- Holly Near
